Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Delivers Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is not picky. Back pain may choose any of us at any time whether we’re stay-at-home people or out-in-the-world workers, active military people or veterans. Chiropractic’s reputation for relieving back pain sufferers persists and grows in the civilian and veteran/military care systems. The newer curiosity has been how much chiropractic care is optimal for back pain relief. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation follows this research since military/veteran back pain resembles our civilian Carrolltown back pain!

BACK PAIN INCIDENCE

80% of us will get back pain at some point in our lives, in our youth, middle years, or elder age. 264 million work days were documented to be lost in one year due to back pain. (1) Carrolltown chiropractic care is created to help all ages! Somewhere between 25 and 33% of older folks reportedly experience low back pain each year. Low back pain for older adults is reported to be debilitating as it often limits their independence and increases their doctor visits. A study that combined primary care with chiropractic care for their back pain resulted in modest improvements in their disability and back pain and higher patient satisfaction and perceived improvement over just primary care. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees these same outcomes for our Carrolltown back pain patients! Older patients with chronic low back pain who also have other medical issues who used only chiropractic spinal manipulation for their back pain had lower overall costs of care, shorter occurrences of back pain, and lower costs of care per back pain episode. (3) Back pain relief in a briefer time at less expense…a triple bonus with Carrolltown chiropractic care for back pain sufferers!

BACK PAIN CARE WITH CHIROPRACTIC

Like the rest of us, military personnel and veterans experience back pain and experience relief with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic is well-integrated into the VA system for veterans with low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. A newly proposed study of chiropractic care in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities for low back pain seeks to see if low dose (1 to 5 visits) or higher dose (eight to twelve visits) chiropractic care for 10 weeks is most beneficial for chronic low back pain relief. (4) (The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management discovered in a study of 1000 back pain patients that 12 visits and 29 days were the mean number of visits and days to get patients maximally improved. (5)) A similar finding was made when chiropractic care was added to usual medical care for active-duty military personnel who had low back pain. Moderate short-term improvement in back pain disability and intensity was reported. Multidisciplinary care of back pain that involves chiropractic is indicated as being beneficial. (6) The aim of Carrolltown chiropractic for back pain sufferers – civilian and military alike – is back pain relief. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is prepared to provide that!
